Frequently asked questions
Pets/ Animal husbandry
What is humic acid?
Humic acid is a high molecular, polymerized, aromatic compound with very complex structures and significant physical-chemical properties. Due to its structure, it can react with almost all types of compounds.
What is HUMAC® Natur AFM?
It is a 100% natural organic-mineral feed material with high content of humic acids. The brownish-black powder is obtained from oxy-humolite (commonly known as Leonardite) which is a substance produced by the natural humification of ancient plant-derived materials.
HUMAC® Natur AFM products are mechanically processed and activated without the use of chemical additives, therefore they have high biological efficacy.
How to feed your pet HUMAC® Natur AFM?
The product is administered by mixing it into feed according to the recommended dosage on the product packaging. During acute health disorders such as diarrhea, etc. we recommend to give a double dose for at least 5 days, or until the symptoms disappear.
I put too much HUMAC® Natur AFM in their feed.
The product is not toxic to animals, an overdose does not result in any severe negative side effects (mild
constipation may occur with higher doses). The product is a 100% natural substance. No chemicals, additives or processes are used in the production that would disturb its natural character. All parameters of the product are strictly controlled in production according to EU standards and regularly by the Central Testing and Inspection Institute of Agriculture in Bratislava, Slovakia. The product is certified GMP+.
How often should I give my pet HUMAC® Natur AFM?
We recommend regular use according to the recommended dosage as humic acid remain in the body for up to 24 hours. You may also alternate between full dose and half dose every month.
What if my pet doesn't want to eat HUMAC® Natur AFM?
The product does not contain fragrances or synthetic aromas. Animals are instinctive about the consumption of natural humic acids contained in HUMAC® Natur AFM. If its your pet’s first time, start with a small amount, just a little sprinkle, then slowly increase the dose.
Diarrhea, loss of appetite?
Diarrhea can rarely occur when introducing HUMAC® Natur AFM to your pet’s diet mainly for two reasons. The natural detoxification of their body has started/increased therefore all the toxins are being washed out of the body.
Most lower quality feeds contain a special material that blocks diarrhea. HUMAC® Natur AFM binds this material as it recognizes it as a toxin.
We recommend to increase the measure of HUMAC by 3-4x for a minimum of 4-5 days in case diarrhoea appears, moreover the change of their feed to a better quality and a more natural type is recommended.
Allergy and medicines
We recommend feeding HUMAC® Natur AFM 2 hours before or after any medication taken.
Is HUMAC good for prevention?
Prevention and strengthening the immune system is better and more effective than healing itself. Humic acids have been shown to have both numerous properties that maintain the health of animals.
Can it be given to any type of animal?
HUMAC® Natur AFM is intended for all animal species.
How long until it starts working?
The beneficial effect on the digestive tract and digestion are noticeable within the first few days of use. For improvements to the animal’s skin or coat, it can take between two weeks to two months for the first results to show depending on the severity of the condition.
What does HUMAC Agro contain?
It contains high concentrations of humic acids in their natural form ± a bioactive substance found in humus with positive impacts on plant nutrition and growth. Contains more than 90 macro, micro and trace elements which are naturally sought by plants
Why use HUMAC Agro?
It is an alternative to natural fertilizers (manure and other organic fertilizers). It detoxifies soil of accumulated toxins which often are picked up by plants animals and people and are the source many present day illnesses. Humic acids have great capacity to capture the majority of toxins at a molecular level (heavy metals, dioxins, PCB, pesticide residues and many other toxins). It creates the conditions for growing healthy produce and is applicable in organic farming for the detoxification of soil from accumulated toxins and airborne toxins from the atmosphere. The product improves soil structure which is often degraded from synthetic fertilizers and has the ability to free up unused minerals. It acts as a soil buffer binding added minerals (from fertilizers added to the soil, prevents their flushing out of the soil, ensures their effective uptake by plants).
What effects does HUMAC Agro have on the soil?
Improves all types of soils, including clay and loamy soils. Restores pH levels in soil towards neutral ± pH7. Develops pedy (smallest structural unit in soil) aerating the soil and thus improving the conditions for water intake into the soil and increasing water content. Activates ion exchange of minerals and trace elements for the root systems of plants.
What makes HUMAC Agro unique?
100% natural substance containing activated natural humic acids in high concentrations, which increase the bioactivity of soils. It has a significant impact on the growth of root systems (up to 50% greater), the above surface plant and ensures higher yields of healthier produce.
Why is it necessary to add HUMAC Agro into the soil?
Because current agricultural and gardening methods do not enable the return of all plant materials back for humification in the soil. By adding the product into the soil we are adding a substance ± humic acids ± which are a natural product from the humification process. Simultaneously, we are adding materials that support the growth of soil bacteria and micro-organisms and improving the soil structure. The solution has proven to revive hard, dead and infertile soil depending on the amount applied. It is recommended to add 1% of the product to compost for the creation of organic components.
Is HUMAC Agro a fertilizer?
The solution is a bioactive substance made from natural sources activated during the manufacturing process. It contains small amounts of N, P, K and organic amino acids. However, as an effective ion exchanger, it has the ability to free up unused nutrients for plants, effectively acting as a fertilizer. During a 4 ± 5 year period, it is sufficient to add only 50% of the original application of mineral and organic fertilizers due to its capacity to retain nutrients in the soil and prevents their flushing out or evaporation, especially nitrogen. Greatly improves the effectiveness of fertilizers added into the soil. Its application is not season dependent as is with fertilizers, it is easily applied and immediately acts by improving the soil fertility. The solution can be applied year round, even during winter onto snow!
Can you combine HUMAC Agro with fertilizers?
Yes, it is an excellent supplement to all types of fertilizers. Increases the long-term effectiveness of fertilizers and reduces fertilizer costs (enables the reduction of fertilizer input by up to 50%. Furthermore, the application of the solution will never result in the burning of crops through overfertilization. It significantly buffers into its structure excess fertilizers and release them when plants require them.
Is HUMAC Agro safe for the environment?
Absolutely! HUMAC Agro is 100% natural. It does not contain any bonding agents or fillers. It is a matured bioactive matter; the activation process reintroduces its effects in the present environment when applied. Humic acids are present all around us in small quantities, in soil¶
humus, in the humification process of of the decomposition of organic matter in nature. Without its presence, not a sliver of grass will grow. We are only aware of its presence in the last 30 years or so. Humic acids are one of the building blocks of life and nature, they are essential for food production, animals and people. It is a blessed product from nature.
Can HUMAC Agro be applied to plants in containers?
Yes, interior plants and plants in pots require HUMAC Agro more often. Plants in flower pots have a tendency to quickly exhaust. These plants are missing soils rich in active micro organisms and minerals from rain and decomposition. We recommend more frequent application with small amounts of liquid fertilizer.
